City of Sveg builds Mankell Culture Center
Posted 2006-06-22
Henning Mankell, photo by Ulla has a short article reporting that work for the planned Mankell Culture Center is now underway in Sveg:
  A groundbreaking ceremony to mark the launch of building work on the Mankell Culture Center (Kulturcentrum Mankell) has taken place in the northern province of Härjedalen.

The center, named after the best-selling Swedish author Henning Mankell and based in his hometown Sveg, is due to open on May 24, 2007. The center is the first of its kind in Sweden and aimed at bringing together authors and cultural devotees through literature and storytelling.


The article has a link to the province of Härjedalen's web page discussing the project. SVT mentioned the project briefly last year.
